We had the pleasure of interviewing Hillary Walker from the Rose Andom Center on this week’s Valor Voice.
Hillary is a licensed social worker whose aim in life is to help survivors – young and old – realize their innate worth through hope and healing. In 2017 Hillary took a career shift to pursue a master’s degree in social work at Colorado State University. Hillary began working at the Rose Andom Center in 2019 as an Intake Specialist, advocating for survivors of domestic violence. Hillary later assumed the role as the Lead Resource Advocate, which involved advocacy and supervising a team of Rose Andom Center’s graduate social work interns. In August of this year, Hillary became the Child & Youth Services Coordinator for the Rose Andom Center, a role that involves Camp Hope America and Pathways, a year-long mentoring and summer camp program for children impacted by violence.
The Rose Andom Center is located in Denver and a place for domestic violence victims to find the safety, support, and services needed to rebuild their lives and heal their families. Rose Andom is Colorado’s first Family Justice Center.
Valor is focused on cleanup and remediation of unattended deaths, suicides, crime scenes across the Colorado region.
